Feeling old?….try Pole Vaulting.



I recently visited my hometown and met up with a high school friend I hadn’t seen in a long time. It happened to be his birthday, and he invited myself and friends to watch him pole vault that evening. He makes a point to always vault on his birthday. He has been doing this for 40 years. (He is a young 55 now.) He was on the track team in high school, and loved the pole vault. As a hobby, he volunteers his time teaching and coaching pole vaulting. As seen in this video, part of his inspiration comes from a 90 year-old vaulter, Earl Bell. He does it because he loves it.

So we gathered on the farm where he lives, and on a beautiful September evening we witnessed something great – someone doing what he loves.

There is a lesson here. Find your passion – and do it. Something that gives you pleasure will stimulate endorphins, and therefore healing energy, and positivity. It will keep you young in the soul, and give you purpose.
